Interstitial 66: Japanese Maple Branch

The bright red branches deliciously contrast with the deep green conifers in the background, as well as the moss and lichen that seems to be taking over. I chose a closeup because I couldn’t get the wider shot I had in my head. The kit lens can only do so much!

 

Interstitial 40: Darkest Days

Waking to darkness and heading home in the dark is the trademark of winter days with little light. Darkness blankets us as we scurry about, changing how we live. We hurry home to the light and warmth of our homes, longing for brighter days that evoke childhood memories of playing outside long past sunset and forgetting to come in for dinner.

Winter reminds us the light is at the end of the tunnel, hope through difficult times will get us through. Without darkness, there is no light.

P.S. Can you see the camera’s reflection?
